Not Just a Blood Bath: Inglourious Basterds Review


Don’t go to see Inglourious Basterds expecting two and a half hours of non-stop Nazi slaughtering. That’s not what this film is about (well, not totally), and let’s remember it’s Tarantino we’re talking about here.

The story is Quentin Tarantino’s fictional retelling of World War II, and the movie is brought to life by an amazing cast and fierce directing. There are so many characters in the film, all of them memorable and integral to the plot in some way. This is due in part to excellent acting (Brad Pitt, Mélanie Laurent, and Christoph Walt, just to name a few), but it’s Tarantino’s innate ability to create such well-drawn characters that makes this movie work.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button review [by Matt Gosciminski]


So the other week I was finally able to get out and see David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which I feel like I’ve known about forever. So it was a treat to see it after waiting for so long. In case you aren’t aware of what this movie happens to be about, it follows the title character, played by Brad Pitt, as he is born a wrinkled old dying baby and “ages” into a fit young man, and eventually dies as if he had just come out of the womb.

Overall, this movie was great, though it didn’t live completely up to my expectations.
